There are several pretty churches around the Wolds, but one of the prettiest is St. James’ Church in Nunburnholme. This village lies approximately 3 miles east of Pocklington and is a popular stop on the Wolds Way walking trail.
St. James’ church is full of history; it was built in the 13th century and had a very famous vicar between 1854 and 1893 called Reverend Morris. Reverend Morris used to study the wildlife around the area and produced a definitive guide during his time as vicar called ‘A History of British Birds’.
With its Early English architecture, and buzzing wildlife, St James’ church is definitely worth a visit.
